2. Same Old RISP Issues
It’s been an issue all season long, and from the looks on their latest 1-5 west coast trip, the teams hitting with runners in scoring position is not getting any better.
Wednesday was another long day basically void of clutch hits for the Tribe, as they went 3-for-13 with runners in scoring position with chances to put the game away and also in the 9th to come back after loading the bases.
Overall on the trip the team was 8-for-57 (.140) when it came to hitting with runners in scoring position, and just like it has all season long, it’s been a huge reason why this team can’t get on a roll.
Not putting the bat on the ball also continues to be a huge issue with RISP, and another eight strikeouts on Wednesday won’t help in that department either.
